Committee of Administrators’ (CoA) chairman for BCCI Vinod Rai has reportedly suggested a quick enquiry into much-criticised comments made by suspended cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul. However, Diana Edulji fears it will be construed as a “cover up” job.
The two-member Committee of Administrators (CoA) is yet again divided and this time on how the inquiry into the latest controversy should be conducted.
Pandya and Rahul, who attracted widespread criticism for their misogynistic comments on TV Show ‘Koffee with Karan’, were supposed to return to India by Saturday or early Sunday, a leading news agency reported.
Meanwhile, in an interview to a private channel, legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar said in case these two players were dropped from the team, there would be no affect. He also deplored the reported the two cricketers’ comments about cheerleaders and Indian cricketers.
On Friday, the two had been omitted from the line up for the opening match at Sydney. Vinod Rai said, “Both Pandya and Rahul are suspended pending an inquiry.” Both players are expected to face an official inquiry into the whole matter.
